When most people think about MPreg stories two things come to mind. Shifters and Omegaverse. These are the two main sub-genres of MPreg and they are both wildly popular.
But there is also the red-headed stepchild of the genre – aliens.
In any poll or discussion about favourite MPreg worlds to read about, you can guarantee that aliens will always come in last place.
I am a huge fan of both the paranormal and sci-fi genres, but after writing so many paranormal stories of the non-MPreg variety, it was only natural that I would want a change now and gravitated towards the sci-fi and alien genre.
In fact, the initial concept for Loving Kit didn’t have anything to do with MPreg at all. The story had initially intended to be a ménage story about a human who woke from cryogenic sleep to find he had lost his ship and people, but was found by aliens who had evolved into humanoid bipeds much as humans had, but rather than having primates as their ancient ancestors, they had other animals such as cats, dogs, and birds.
That concept remained, but the MPreg came later, after I had stumbled across an article about regular kitty cats who are born with both male and female genitals. Yes, they do actually exist right here on Earth. Now, one of the articles I read was about an owner of a male cat, who they discovered was pregnant. At first they thought they had simply been misinformed about the gender of their pet, and only later discovered that the kitty was both male and female. Now, this is very rare, and for the most part it seems that one or both of the sex organs is not fully functional in these animals, but there are reports of some that are truly both male and female.
So, there I was, after falling down this particular rabbit hole with the inkling of a new idea – we’ve all been there, when you click on one article and then another and another, and before you know it, you’re reading about something totally irrelevant to what you started out looking for… but that is where all the best plot bunnies lurk.
Since one of my aliens was a member of a species who had evolved from felines, the idea of having the males of that race able to carry young wasn’t a huge leap of imagination.
Thus, my dual-gendered felines were born.
My felines are – I hope – unique amongst the MPreg stories out there, so how about I tell you all a little more about them, and maybe you will find that aliens can be just as intriguing to read about as the shifters and omegas.
The dual-gendered felines are relatively new amongst their kind. Around eighty years prior to the time of the stories a sickness swept through the females leaving many of them unable to conceive. The cure to the illness resulted in an unexpected side-effect which was only discovered when the next generation was born… felines born both male and female, known as dual-gendered amongst their kind.
Up until maturity there is no way of telling whether a dual-gendered feline will become male or female dominant. They are known as pre-determined, have their own unique pronouns, and are often given gender neutral names so as to save on confusion later in life if the parents have mistakenly anticipated the incorrect dominant gender of their offspring.
It doesn’t matter whether the dual-gendered feline is male or female dominant, both are equally fertile when it comes to having children, which results in pregnant males.
When they are pregnant, the male felines find that their female hormones become more dominant so that they can not only carry, but also nourish their young babies. Yes, my male papas also temporarily develop breasts and breastfeed their little ones. I know this isn’t wildly popular amongst readers in the genre, but as you have probably already gathered, I have never been one to follow the crowd when it comes to my writing.
Of course, my felines share the most important thing with the rest of the MPreg stories. They are males who wish to raise their babies with loving mates. They may be aliens in body, but their hearts are just the same as those of humans.
I have had a great deal of fun putting together the world of my felines and hope that readers will enjoy visiting that universe. The alien MPreg stories may not be the most popular, but within sci-fi there is a great deal of scope for expansion to come up with new ideas to keep the genre fresh, for those who are looking for something just a little bit different from the rest.
